As organisations push towards ambitious Net Zero goals through the integration of clean energy sources, the demand for wind power continues to soar. However, the development, operation, and maintenance of wind facilities presents a unique set of challenges, particularly in terms of managing risk. The complexity of regulatory compliance and the need to maintain optimal financial, operational, and supply chain performance requires a comprehensive and holistic approach to risk management throughout the entire lifecycle of wind assets and facilities.
